Waterpark growth in North America continues at a fast pace Ken Ellis and Arthur Berry III, co-owners of the


hile the amusement park industry is enjoying slow but steady growth in North America, the waterpark industry

A surprising number of new waterparks are under construction and expected to open in 2019: Paul Ruben shares what we know so far… In New Caney, Texas, Big Rivers Water Park will span 28 acres and feature the largest wave pool in Houston. Phase 1 of the two-phased construction is set two open soon, making, Big Rivers Water Park the second largest in the Houston area.

Poconos’ Camelback Resort, will build the Kartrite Hotel & Indoor Waterpark on the Resorts World Catskills campus located in the Town of Thompson, New York. Set to open in early 2019, The Kartrite will feature two acres (0.8 hectares) of four-season indoor waterpark space and a luxury hotel with 324 guest suites. Aquatic Development Group (ADG) has been contracted to design and build the indoor waterpark at The Kartrite. ADG’s award-winning leadership and cutting-edge innovation will create a modern, state-of-the-art indoor waterpark for guests of all ages, inspired by the architecture of indoor waterparks in Europe. The Kartrite’s unobstructed column-free construction will feature a barrel-shaped transparent Texlon roof that will bathe visitors in natural sunlight throughout the year. This will allow tropical plants to thrive inside the waterpark, immersing guests in a vegetation-rich environment


like no other indoor waterpark in the nation. The waterpark will also feature a signature mezzanine, uniquely designed with luxury cabanas. American Dream Meadowlands, a retail and


entertainment center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will open next year. The DreamWorks indoor park, designed by Dreamworks, the film company behind Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and How To Train Your Dragon, is under construction as part of the venue, and will be North America’s largest indoor water park. Fan-favourite characters and popular water features will be included under a domed glass building, providing year-round climate control in the 250,000 square-foot venue. According to industry observer David J. Sangree,


president, Hotel & Leisure Advisors, the development of the DreamWorks indoor waterpark near New York City “finally brings to fruition a proposal that has been working to obtain financing for over 15 years. When it opens in March 2019, the waterpark will provide the largest and potentially most extensively themed indoor waterpark in the United States and will be a strong competitor to the Poconos indoor waterpark resorts. It will also raise the expectation level of many families going to indoor waterparks.”
